Each year brings an avalanche of new studies devoted to the civil rights struggle. The white southern response to the civil rights crusade of the 1950s and 1960s, once a scarcely considered subject, is receiving greater scholarly focus as part of this publication wave. Despite the ever-expanding corpus devoted to the movement considerable gaps exist in the historiography. Far less attention has been given to those white southerners, who risked their professions and sometimes their lives, to challenge the regional status quo. These unsung heroes of the civil rights fight are the subject of retired history teacher Elaine Lechtrek’s engaging work, White Ministers and the Civil Rights Movement.
